What an absolute joke that this guy is not in camp yet.    How tone deaf can someone be.

Why should he care?

Maybe he's trying to get released?

Time to change over the Chris Davis 2019 thread.    

Here were some quotes from Davis that suggested some semblance of a plan to go along with his bulking up:

 

 

Retire Chris. It’s time.

Whatever.  Happy that the guys that are most likely going to be considered for the future winning teams are in camp.  Davis in camp or out of camp doesn't make a bit of difference to me.

Betcha the guy who might have a chance at the 26th spot on the roster cares if he is.

So he had the biggest seasons of his career bulked up. Are we to believe this semi genius then decided to slim down to see how he would do, sucked for 3 years, and then decided to bulk up again?

Yes

In his final 2019 game, Davis went 1 for 3 with two walks, grounding out and K-looking in the last two at-bats. So breaking his own major-league record for consecutive hitless at-bats (54) will be a much bigger challenge this year. Adding to the difficulty is the likelihood that his starts will be further apart this year. Maybe he can adjust by setting himself more attainable goals, such as number of consecutive K's-looking

He might have been sick or had a family emergency.  I don’t see it as a big deal.

Yeah this isn’t a surprise. Like I have said before , he takes pitches right down the middle and swings at balls in the dirt.  So I don’t think there is any hope for him.  Well unless the Orioles start stealing pitch type.

He probably has tinnitus.

Shouldn’t be paid 

Players don't get paid for spring training. I guess he could be fined. I don't know how long he would have to not show up before they could put him on the inactive list (which would mean not paying him).

You would think that Davis would try to do things that would not put him in the spotlight, like showing up on time or even early. I never really cared for the guy, even before his contract. That said, it is not his fault that he was offered that contract. That fault lies ultimately with Angelos and whoever encouraged it...perhaps Showalter, AJ, or Angelos himself. I do have a bit of sympathy for Davis. It can't be easy knowing he's heading into a half year plus of being in a place where he is not wanted, booed and under a microscope. Yes, $20 million plus helps, but he's already gotten about $100 mill...so, does he need the extra to live on and improve his lifestyle? Can he walk away from it?? Sure and then he will get all sort of crap from the Players Union, his agent and maybe others. Here is a man, that for a short period of time could hit monster HR's, was rewarded handsomely. He won't be remembered for that, instead it will be the bad contract and his diminished skills. Kind of sad.

    • Bad move and I am not going to be excited about it! I gave a list in my last posts of guys they could've taken a shot on in the rule 5. Obviously some of them aren't ready but who cares. They would've saved around 1 million dollars and as long as his glove plays who cares if you are signing a guy that going to get on base as such a low percentage anyway. I honestly thought Elias would move away from the low OBP guys that have been a staple of Orioles baseball for a long time. I understand trading Iglesias for resources ....But I don't see how signing this guy does anything but cost extra money that the Orioles are showing signs of financial distress.
    • I said I was exaggerating! I'm not incorrect in saying that this move is "Dumpster Diving" or the Bottom of Bargain Bin signing! And as @Tony-OH said they could've just gave the at bats to Martin or someone else that we have playing for the minimum. Or draft a guy in the rule 5 that perhaps has a future in MLB baseball. Like Lenyn Sosa, SS, Alfredo Rodriguez, SS , Wenceel Perez, SS , Livan Soto, SS , Leonardo Rivas, SS , Omar Estevez, 2B/SS,  Wander Javier, SS , Arquimedes Gamboa SS, Jordy Barley SS, Kevin Smith SS/3B Players that I highlighted 1) Wander Javier 60 ARM/60 GLOVE 2) Livan Soto   55 ARM/ 60 GLOVE /50 HIT 3) Leonardo Rivas 60 ARM/60 GLOVE/55 HIT (***BB PROSPECTUS 2020) 4) Arquimedes Gamboa 60 ARM/60 GLOVE /60 RUN 5) Jordy Barley 60 ARM/ 55 GLOVE/60RUN 6) Kevin Smith  60 ARM/ 55 GLOVE https://www.mlb.com/news/rule-5-draft-eligible-prospects-2020   AND DONT BE A TROLL!!  
    • Me either, but apparently they believe Galvis is a significantly better player then he's been over the last few years offensively and the major drop off last year defensively was apparently an aberration, because players normally get better at 31.  I don't hate this move, I just don't see what it does all that much. I think they could have player Sanchez at SS and probably gotten the same defense and allowed Valaika or Urias to play 2B every day to see what they have. But hey, why not bring in a 31-year old with bad defensive numbers last year and well below average stick?
    • I just dont understand why anyone would be excited about this move.
    • It was his first year back calling games in 2020 and unless Garceau started cursing during broadcasts last year, he was always going to be in the fold. 
    • We won 14 games last year and 11 games this year doing exactly what I'm saying, and Lamar won an MVP for it last year.  Brees won 12 games this year without really throwing downfield, including beating the bucs twice in the regular season.  Manning won a super bowl in 2016 without being able to throw it deep.  So no, I'm not wrong.  If you don't think Lamar specifically can succeed with midrange passes then I'd like to know why.  But there are plenty of examples of successful QBs within the past 5 years that didn't rely on deep balls.
